Earlier this month I was commissioned to do illustrations for Katy Leen's Lora Weaver mystery series and this week they went up on Amazon! I had so much fun working with Katy and hopefully I'll have more covers to share in the future when the mystery series continues! :)
You can check out all of the books on Amazon here!
Today I FINALLY listed my 2014 calendar in the shop! I can't believe how long it took me to finish it this year, but I'm really happy with how it came out, so I'm glad I didn't rush. The calendar is available printed here and as a printable PDF here. I'll be listing all of the new drawings as prints later today!
I also decided to turn the drawing for June into a Christmas card, it just seemed so warm and cozy! The greeting reads "Wishing you a storybook Christmas" and they come in packs of five cards here.

I'm so excited about this one! It's an at-a-glance calendar with all of 2014 on one single page, formatted to look like a (albeit misshapen) silent movie title card! Like I said after I posted my new Halloween banner, I'm ridiculously smitten with this idea of bringing more silent movie inspired details into Flapper Doodle.
I'm still working on my regular calendar (with a little over a week until Thanksgiving, ahh! I'm so behind this year!) but I'm determined to finish it up this week. In the mean time, there's this one as well as all of my previous designs updated with the dates for 2014, here.
I was originally going to hand-letter each month for the calendar separately, but after doing January and February and seeing how inconsistent my lettering was I decided to just draw the alphabet instead and make it into a font!
It's been almost 2 years since I last made a font so after I drew the alphabet and scanned it I was pretty lost. After hours of fiddling around I figured it all out again and wrote down all the steps so I can whip up fonts in a breeze from now on! I love making them so hopefully now that I've nailed the production process I can make a lot more :)
Silent Movie is available as a .ttf font (works for mac & pc!) in my etsy shop, here.
I have a new seasonal printable in the shop! I'm kind of incredibly smitten with this one!! Each card is designed to look like a silent movie title card. It even has a grainy black background to mimic the look of 80 year old film. With white hand-drawn lettering and title-card inspired decorative elements it's the perfect decoration for a classy Halloween! It's available in my etsy shop for $5 as an instant download here.
